We have a lot of pregnant women taking all of our products. All of our products are safe for pregnancy.
Each serve of Complex green and Complex berry has a multivitamin formula (1/3 of a daily dose) that has been carefully designed by Australia'a top Biochemist/ Clinical Nutiritionist, Henry Osiecki. In the multi-vitamin, there is Vitamin A which is what you have to be careful of for pregnancy. This is easy to look after with our formula. The regulations on Vitamin A is that during pregnancy you should not exceed 3000ugRE as an excess has been suspected as being linked with birth defects. The recommended daily amount from all sources for women is 700ugRE. One serve of our Complex green or Complex berry is 150ugRE. To place this in perspective, it would take 20 doses to reach the excess of 3000ugRE. In addition we have selenium which is seen to be toxic at high doses and a daily dose of 150ug for adults of selenium from dietary supplements should not be exceeded. Our product is 20ug per dose- you would have to take 8 doses per day to exceed this. Note:- These dosage restrictions come from the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Association).
Our products are food grade as they are a superfood blend, however we blend our formulas in a strict TGA facility in order to stay within strict bacteria assessment and quality assurance in order to maximise the benefit to the customer. Other products are packaged as food and they do not adhere to these same self- applied restrictions. It is something that we do because we believe it is the best way to maintain the best quality product. This is important to know for pregnancy.
The most important thing to think about pre-and during pregnancy is getting the best nutrition. We could not bring you better formulas and the best thing is that you don't have to eat loads of bulky food to get the same nutrition.
